The One Book One Nebraska reading program is entering its nineteenth year. It encourages Nebraskans across the state to read and discuss one book, chosen from books written by Nebraska authors or that have a Nebraska theme or setting. A committee of the Nebraska Center for the Book selected this book from a numerous list titles nominated by Nebraskans from across the state. The Nebraska Center for the Book board announced the choice for the 2023 One Book One Nebraska on October 22 at the annual Celebration of Nebraska Books.
This year’s winner of the One Book One Nebraska award is The Mystery of Hunting’s End by Mignon G. Eberhart. The Sand Hills of Nebraska, where Mignon G. Eberhart lived as a newlywed, inspired the setting of this 1930 chiller. Smack in the middle of the rolling desolation is Hunting’s End, a weekend lodge owned by the rich Kingery family. To that place socialite Matil Kingery invites a strange collection of guests—the same people who were at the lodge when her father died of “heart failure” exactly five years ago. She intends to find out which one of them murdered him.
